Zajac scored the first goal of the game and assisted on Reid Boucher's game-winner -- both on power plays -- in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over Boston. In a bizarre game that saw the Devils get utterly dominated in shots by a ridiculous 40-15 margin, Zajac and Reid Boucher were difference makers, making good on their precious few scoring chances. Not typically much of a scorer, Zajac's potted goals in consecutive games, part of a recent streak of productivity that's seen him notch seven points in his last seven contests. The Devils don't do a whole lot of scoring these days, but when they do get on the board, Zajac has typically been involved.
Zajac potted his 13th goal of the season in Sunday's loss to the Hurricanes. Zajac's tally came midway through the second period and just 50 seconds after New Jersey's first goal, and it appeared as though the Devils would be able to overcome their initial 3-0 deficit, but no one was able to find twine the rest of the way. The center is now at the 40-point plateau for just the second time since the 2010-11 campaign, making for a decent -- though not elite -- option.
Zajac tallied two goals, two blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in a 3-0 win over the Sharks. This was Zajac's third multi-point outing in his last nine games, and he has now has recorded four goals and three assists in that span. Interestingly enough, the 30-year-old hasn't scored much at home of late, as all seven of his points in this nine-game span have come on the road. Zajac is continuing to receive just over 19 minutes of ice time each game, and still holds decent fantasy value in some leagues.
Zajac registered a power-play goal and assisted on the game-winning score in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win against Nashville. Zajac stopped a scoreless streak of two, notching points in three of his last six appearances. The 30-year-old is on ice for just under 20 minutes a game, allowing for decent -- yet unspectacular -- production from the center. The former first-round pick does have seven multi-point outings on the season, allowing for consideration in deep formats.
Zajac assisted on the lone goal of Sunday's win over the Kings. It was mostly a defensive battle, but Zajac helped set up David Schlemko's power-play tally just over five minutes into the contest that eventually proved to be difference. The 30-year-old hasn't had his most productive season thus far, but he's heating up a bit of late with points in five of his last six games and could be worth considering in deeper formats.
